About me and my therapy practice

I am an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor working in private practice in Brixton and Clapham. I provide a safe, supportive and confidential space to help build a trusting therapeutic relationship in order for you to really feel heard. I believe this will help you feel comfortable to explore any issues that you are finding hard to deal with like major life changes brought on through bereavement and loss, trauma and relationship issues. I will help you explore what's happening in the here and now and may use the past and early experiences to help make sense of repeated patterns and unhelpful behaviours.

I combine aspects from different models of therapy to best help each individual client. I draw upon the humanistic philosophies offering a warm, empathic and non-judgmental space to build a good working relationship in order to better understand your difficulties and needs. I use psychodynamic concepts to explore unconscious processes and the impact that childhood events and relationships may have in the present. I will help you reach your goals whether that’s finding peace of mind, reaching your full potential or moving forward with your life with a better understanding of who you are and where you want to be.

I offer face-to-face and online short-term or long-term therapy. I have volunteered for many years with a children’s hospice offering support and bereavement counselling to parents and carers of children with life limiting conditions and disabilities and have undertaken extensive bereavement counselling training. I have worked in an NHS practice and for charities such as Mind helping clients with common mental health issues. 

My first session

I offer an initial session of 50 minutes during which I will carry out an assessment and give you the space to share your story and express your concerns. During this session I will make notes about you and your history and explain how I work. There is no obligation for you to continue with me but if at the end of the initial session you feel you would like to continue, a weekly session will then be scheduled at the same time each week.
